THE CANTERBURY TALES
1971, Park Circus/MGM, 109 min, Italy/France, Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

On a pilgrimage to Canterbury, a group of travelers agree to share stories to ease the journey – and we’re treated to a riotous carnival of lecherous old merchants, deceitful young wives, naked satyrs, houses of prostitution, a handsome devil in rent collector’s clothes and much more. With stunning production design by Dante Ferretti (GANGS OF NEW YORK) and a haunting score of period music selected by Pasolini and Ennio Morricone. Winner of the Golden Bear at the 1972 Berlin Film Festival. With Hugh Griffith, Laura Betti, Ninetto Davoli, Franco Citti and Pasolini himself as Geoffrey Chaucer.

TEOREMA
1968, MondoTV, 105 min, Italy, Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

A startling allegory and impenetrable mystery, TEOREMA follows the strange sexual exploits of a family that falls prey to the allure of a sudden intruder. Terence Stamp delivers an eerie performance as the mysterious guest, known only as “the Visitor,” who completely enamors family members Silvana Mangano, Massimo Girotti, Anne Wiazemsky and Andrés José Cruz Soublette. The second installment of Pasolini’s “Mythical Cycle” and the first time he worked primarily with professional actors, the film is a haunting critique of bourgeois society.


Both films in Italian and English with English subtitles.
